UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

Would recommend this service to anyone looking for a reasonably priced and professional service to put together aesthetically pleasing booklets for commercial use. The finish is wonderful and well presented but I was most impressed by the online service (including being able to preview the booklet in advance online) and the customer care - ensuring that the booklet would look just the way I wanted and so that any unplanned mistakes were erased.

Pros: -fast turnaround and communication. -reasonably priced and the instant quote generator is a great feature -Interior pages are incredibly quality. sharp and bold colours and print. Cons- -I erroneously ordered the cover stock the same as the interior , so the books are a bit flimsy and the ink is chipping off the covers, very disappointing, but i accept that it is my fault, just worth keeping an eye out for on the order menu as it's easily overlooked. Overall: I initially heard of Mixam as they were making waves in the UK comic scene as being a new rival to the pre-existing comic printers in the uk. And my willingness to no longer support companies with poor social media etiquette or questionable customer service meant i was in the new market for a printer for multiple upcoming books, and i chose to try mixam. This is my first order with them but definitely will not be the last. Professional, Reasonable and competitive rates, and an incredibly impressive turnaround time.

Excellent service - very easy and intelligent website to navigate and upload to, with suggestions on how to bundle your package for cheaper, online chat and phone number, very reachable, amendable uploads, info on formats, all very straightforward. Really fast turnaround, came 3 days earlier than expect. They use a good courier so you don't feel like your parcel might be orbiting outer space.

The actually product (Booklets) was as good as I hoped. Using the instant quote and price calculator was simple enough. Ordering the product could have been a little easier, but wasn't anything I didn't manage to work out in the end. Delivery was excellent and I was able to track all the way. Will definity be using again.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
